All three parts of the sexy, romantic serial!
Escorting the Billionaire Part 1

Love don't cost a thing... except everything.
When billionaire mogul James Preston hires an escort as a date for his brother's wedding, he knows he's taking a risk. One thing he won't be taking? The escort's clothes off. He just wants a date--not a girlfriend. Not a relationship. No strings. No ties. No games. No sex. He has his reasons. He lost someone he loved, and isn't interested in trying again. Too many opportunities for mistakes or worse, heartbreak.

Audrey Reynolds became a high-end escort to keep her brother in his expensive group home. James Preston is the client of her dreams--he's offering to pay her more money for two weeks than she's ever made before. But James is...difficult. He's gorgeous, troubled and all too human for Audrey's business-like tastes. Determined to complete her assignment and collect the money, Audrey tries to play by James's rules. But before she knows what's happening, he's rewriting the contract.

When Audrey ends up in James's bed, he realizes that she's everything he's wanted...and everything he's been running from.

Escorting the Billionaire Part 2
Two weeks is all they have... is it enough?
High-end Escort Audrey Reynolds opened herself up to real feelings for James Preston, the billionaire who hired her. And then he turned on her. Now she's back on assignment and guarding her heart.

All Audrey wants is to finish the assignment; she needs to make enough money to keep her brother safe. That's what she keeps telling herself, anyway.

James is determined to earn back Audrey's trust. When Audrey's mother threatens to expose that her daughter is a prostitute to his family and the press, James takes matters into his own hands. Unfortunately, his own mother is much more difficult to manage. Carefully guarding her family fortune, James's mother is beginning to see Audrey as a real threat to the Preston name.

And she doesn't even know the half of it.

Escorting the Billionaire Part 3
She's an escort... but is she a sure thing?
High-end escort Audrey Reynolds is determined to protect billionaire James Preston from anything that could hurt him--including her.

Everything changes when James tells her his real feelings.

When James's mother steps in, Audrey has to decide if being with James is worth the risk. She wants to protect him, and James wants to be with her, but can they find a happily ever after together--and in one piece?

My Opinion

This was another freebie I picked up on Amazon. And since my tbr pile is clear of all ARCs right now I thought I'd give it a go. 

Escorting the Billionaire turned out to be a good read. I enjoyed the story and the character development as they went from escort and client to more. I thought the author did a good job with Audrey  and making her likeable. While she was an escort, she had a kind heart and her own reasons for the job. It made her easy to feel for. 

As for the plot, at times it dragged a little and the story line felt repetitive at times, but it did hold my attention until the end. I did feel the ending was rushed a bit. For me the author could have taken out some of the repetitive scenes in the middle and added a slower ending that didn't feel so abrupt. Saying that, the epilogue did tie up loose ends, just very quickly. 

Overall, a good read. It's a little different to the billionaire books I've read before because of the escort element, but I thought the author did a good job of creating likeable characters that kept me interested.
